I have been in a BRT* or two, but just part time, I wasn't a real Migrant Radiation Worker. No dosimetry was required for the time I spent inside a reactor vessel and associated piping. I was working in construction QA at San Onofre Units 2 and 3 and picked to help with a shutdown at Unit 1. I returned to constriction but was called back for two more Unit 1 shutdowns before we completed work on Units 2 and 3. After San Onofre we moved to Texas to finish the South Texas Project, with some brief stops at the Grand Gulf and Palo Verde plants. After STP it was the Savannah River Site where I became a cat herder and retired.Clip wrote:Pinetree, are you a fellow radworker?
I hear you. It will take a long time to decommission the 'Dolly Parton memorial', you might get a chance to work there yet. It is a gorgeous location, built into the bluff above the shore of the Pacific Ocean. Fantastic sunsets and you often see San Nicolas or Catalina islands as you ascend the 155 steps to the parking area.Clip wrote:Very cool to meet someone else in the industry on here! I've currently got a TLD in northern Ohio but prefer my boilers to these crazy P's. It was really sad to see SONGS go before I had a chance to get out there and see it.

It's hard to be serious when people insist on clinging to mythical beliefs about radiation. This thread has several well written and thoughtful replies explaining the lack of danger in knife steel made in Japan, just read them. This site is loaded with educational information to improve ones understanding of many subjects.Cheddarnut wrote:Whats funny to me is that the same people that spend their time considering the relatively benign minutiae of iron alloys would be the ones to mock someone for their concern with health complications resulting in equally minute trace factors within said iron alloys.
Whats with the mob mentality bullying? Do we make fun of people who ask edgeucational questions? Its ok to play with knives but not ok to be concerned for the well being of our families?
I can see why politics aren't allowed on here.
